Sumner & Lang

A collaborative writing company

Freelance Writing & Editing

  • Universities

    We have completed projects for university communications teams, development offices, individual faculties and department leaders.

  • Schools

    We worked for fifteen years in leading independent schools and have written almost every kind of internal and external communication.

  • Businesses

    We have clients in design, law, real estate, crisis response, publishing, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods, among other areas.

  • Speakers & Authors

    We help thinkers and leaders with non-fiction books, presentations, speeches, newsletters, articles or anything else they need.

The Partnership

Our company is about collaboration. We aren't just two writers for the price of one - we are your team. From client meetings to research to drafts to final copy, we are in everything together. Which means that you get twice the vision, creativity, attentiveness and precision of other writers.

What Clients Say

  • Karen and Warren are consummate professionals. They helped me take my book to the final stage of publication. Throughout the process, they were engaged, detailed and remarkably helpful. You won't find people more careful and considerate than these two.

    David Dingwall, Lawyer, Author and Former Canadian Cabinet Minister
  • Karen and Warren are a highly creative duo who I can count on for lots of language options when I am working up a concept or managing a project. They're great to work with and I think of them as part of my team.

  • I trust Sumner & Lang with my communications projects. No job is too big or too small - sometimes I just call with a question or ask them to finesse an ad - and their turnaround time is fantastic. I'm really pleased that they have just written our new Prospectus.

    Kim Sillcox, Director of External Communications, The Country Day School
  • They're fast, they're smart and they're fun. Oh, and they can write anything you need - with clarity, precision and insight. These are people you can rely on. I call them all the time, and so does my Manager of Operations.
